Hi folks, sorry we were missing on Caturday, but mum was out with the family. You see our beautiful niece Miss Belle - is all grown up now, and come to start at university in our city. So big uncle and sister in law bought her down with all of her stuff. They were having a lovely weekend, eating out and relaxing. Me - not so much as between painters and visitors, I have been out under the deck or hiding in the neighbours garden all weekend.
So last night, everybody had lights out at midnight and were asleep when we heard big uncles car alarm go off at 5am. Everybody ran down the 45 steps in front of the house, but the passenger front and back windows had been smashed in and poor Miss Belle, as her suitcase and linen had all been taken from the boot of the car, so she was pretty distraught.
Our police were good - as they arrived within 15 minutes, but there was little they could do except take the details. Even the police van with dogs came out and had a look around, but the offenders had taken off. Miss Belle then posted on the facebook and said if anyone found anything to let her know.
At 09:30am a nice lady rang from two suburbs away to say that she had been out running, and found some stuff, so we bought some chocolates and a lotto ticket and went to her house, and most of it was still there, so miss Belle got back her clothes, photos and toiletries, although her pens and bedding and linen were taken.
So we got to have a fun day driving around without windows as they had to be ordered in. We restocked all the things Miss Belle needed and then got her to Uni on time and she looked happy. Big uncle and sister in law went home two days early to sort out the car, and after a bit of enticement I am back in the house with mum.
So hopefully the family will all sleep well. Mum has tomorrow off to help Miss Belle get the final things she needs for her hostel, and things will settle down again.
